Well. Late in the evening, yesterday, the last day of August, there was enough rain to sail a boat here. The roof in the studio leaked, but today all is quenched. Water has gone deep. It was a dry season. Too dry. Yesterday. A HOT day, there was also melon hunting and melon eating. They are small but sweet. The late turn towards heated days has helped the ripening. After one of the coolest summers on record, looks like Indian Summer will take hold and the transition will be like an extra summer here in the woods by the sea.
Above, the first photo, the first of the basket prints waiting for stitch.
For a plant printed series planned for Autumn days before the winter chill. I will stitch them when it gets too cold to be outside. The green is from fresh indigo leaves. I only grew a potful this year, just enough to play with.
I am working on my Autumn Newsletter so you might know more specifically what is on my mind this season. In general, I am still finishing the feather cloth which seems to need me a bit longer than expected. I am still engaged in Considering Weave which has given me new eyes. The shop is closed and for now the new shop in no shop. As I quietly cross over into September. Always my favorite month no matter how it goes. After The Shift, I will be opening a new opportunity for learning called Small Journeys. A way to look into my process, my thoughts, my heart. If you would like more information on what I am planning you can email me. Or simply wait until I gather myself together and make it official.
